Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2002 Dodge Caravan Owner Comments

problem #5

May 162012

Caravan Sport V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 100,000 miles


Driver's side sliding door is stuck shut. It's not the end of the world but it can be inconvenient to have an inoperable door. I've heard it's expensive to fix and it would be cheaper to buy a new car than to have the problems on this one repaired.

Don't get this year caravan. You'll regret it. I've had a TON of expensive (and weird) problems with it.

Caravan 3.3L V6

Don't let anyone slam your sliding door. If it won't latch there is something wrong. slamming door closed will bend the manual unlocking rod.
